Religious Affairs Ministry Ignores
Pleas for Aid, Liberal Rabbis Charge

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire

JERUSALEM — The Council of
Progressive Rabbis of Israel, some
of whose congregations have re-
cently had difficulties in finding
places to worship under alleged
Orthodox pressures, charged the
religious affairs ministry Tuesday
with either denying or ignoring
their requests for help.
The council made the charge in
a statement issued here which as-
serted that public claims to the
contrary by the ministry did not
"reflect the truth." The council
claims that the ministry had turn-
ed down or ignored requests from
a number of its congregations for
Torah scrolls salvaged from the
Nazi holocaust in Europe and sent
to the ministry.
A spokesman for the ministry,
commenting on the complaint, said
that the number of such Torah
scrolls was not sufficient far dis-
tribution to all applicants. The

spokesman cited, as an example of
its problems, the fact that most
of the scrolls recently received
from the Westminister Synagogue
in London had been found to be
unusable. He said they had been
buried in accordance with tradi-

Knesset Bans Any Statute
Limitations for Genocide

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire
to The Jewish News)

JERUSALEM — Israel's parlia-
ment decided unanimously Mon-
day night against any statute of
limitations for genocide and crimes
against humanity.
A previously-adopted law bans
any limitation for prosecution of
Nazi war crimes, but the new leg-
islation, proposed by the National
Religious Party, gives far wider
scope to the principle.
The Knesset members indicated
their attitude on the serious na-
ture of the matter with a vote by
rising to their feet instead of the
customary show of hands.

University of Wisconsin

to Ban Sorority Unless It

Adopts Non-Bias Pledge

MADISON—The University of
Wisconsin faculty has voted that
the Wisconsin chapter of Kappa
Delta Sorority must cease all
campus operations by Sept. 15,
1967, unless it submits a certifi-
cate on non-discrimination.
The vote approved a recommen-
dation by the faculty committee on
human rights. The committee re-
ported that all registered social
organizations on the Madison
campus • except Kappa Delta, in-
cluding 30 fraternities and 15 sor-
orities, have submitted the requir-
ed certificate.
The committee pointed out in
its report that the Wisconsin chap-
ter of the sorority had made
strenuous efforts to change the
national officers' uncooperative
position. The report also noted
that the Wisconsin Kappa Delta
chapter has four Jewish members
and one Jewish pledge.
